(San Bernardino, Calif.) LaSalle Medical Associates has a reputation for a commitment to providing community-based healthcare that ensures maximum availability of medical services. In keeping with this commitment, LaSalle Medical Associates is excited by the addition of Victor H. Madero as their new Director of Network Development.
In his new role with LaSalle, Victor Madero will lead the strategic effort for LaSalle’s expansion of its Independent Practice Association (IPA) network in Los Angeles, Madera, Riverside, San Bernardino, Fresno, Kings, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare Counties.
“There are three branches of the healthcare field,” said Victor. “Health plans, hospital systems, and managed care organizations. Having worked for both a health plan and a hospital, this was the natural progression for me to work for a managed care organization with a reputation for quality health care, like LaSalle. It just seemed to fit. I am very excited about joining the LaSalle family.”
LaSalle Medical Associates is poised to expand its independently contracted doctors, hospitals, and clinics throughout California. Victor will be responsible for creating business strategies for negotiating contracts with new and existing large physician groups, hospitals, and clinics. His leadership will focus on maintaining optimum levels of quality care for a network with close to 200,000 lives.
“We are delighted to welcome Victor to LaSalle Medical Associates,” said Dr. Albert A. Arteaga, founder and president of LaSalle Medical Associates. “His diverse healthcare experience and insights gained through work with Anthem Blue Cross and White Memorial Medical Center will play an integral part in building the type of relationships our providers can not only trust, but may rely on to be responsive to their needs.”
“My primary goal with LaSalle Medical Associates is to partner with a range of health care providers and to help expand the choice of hospitals, primary, and specialty care physicians into new communities in order to increase medical access where patients need it most” said Victor. “Building trusting relationships has always been a key component in the positions I have worked in. My desire is for our providers to feel like an extension of the LaSalle family within their county. In order to be a true partner, we need to show our commitment to actively helping them grow, and not merely managing from a distance. Although we are a large organization, we would like to cast the shadow of a smaller organization by listening and knowing what our providers need most to be successful.”
